Dhiyana always does her best. She works hard and consistently produces very good work. Dhiyana is eager to extend her learning and loves to work independently to further her knowledge and skills. Dhiyana works well as part of a group, she takes turns and is very caring towards other children. Dhiyana is a happy well-mannered girl and a pleasure to have in class.
Lola is eager to learn and always tries her best. Lola enjoys working and playing in nursery and is a pleasure to have in class. Lola is a kind and friendly little girl. Lola works well in a group and encourages other children to join in. Lola shares resources and is very caring towards others.
Ellie consistently shines in Reception. She is always eager to go above and beyond with every task that she is given. Ellie thrives on challenges and consistently produces fantastic work. Ellie respects all her classmates and if often a ‘buddy’ to other children that need a friend during lunch. Ellie will also help those that struggle with their work during Literacy and Maths. In the entire time I have had Ellie (since Nursery) I have never had to speak to her about looking after our classroom, sharing, general class rules etc. Ellie Simkin is an outstanding pupil both academically and socially!
Olivia over the last few weeks has really demonstrated a positive attitude to everything she does, especially her writing and numberwork! She is a resilient learner and keeps going until she has produced the best work possible. She has a fantastic attitude to learning and is eager to impress others. Olivia is a very polite, kind and well-behaved member of the class. She is always one of the first to help tidy up and look after a class mate who may be upset. Olivia has really blossomed since Easter and I always tell her that she is ‘on fire’ because she always works as if she was working on a hot task! She is a great role model in Reception!
Year One Nominations
Lewis is mature beyond his years he is an all-round hard worker. He always gives 100% in all areas of learning and demonstrates a ‘can do’ attitude. He is a great friend to have and a very popular member of the class. All the children respect him for many reasons but mainly because he has the ability to nurture others who are in need. Lewis cares for his environment and often says he loves our school and demonstrates this by always following the rules and promoting them to others. It is an absolute pleasure to have Lewis in Year 1 and I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching him this year.
Sophie is a bubbly character who has a great sense of humour with a giggle that is contagious. She has a positive approach to all aspects of school life and I am always impressed with her standard of work; she puts her ‘all’ into it. Her ability to persist on a task that she finds challenging is commendable! Sophie has grown in confidence during her time in year 1 and it has been an absolute pleasure to see her blossom. She has a kind and caring nature and often reaches out to help the more challenging children in our class. Her behaviour is exemplary and she is a positive role model. Sophie’s most inspiring attribute is that she is a team player and always listens to others opinions.
Year Two Nominations
Gabrielle is the perfect example of a model pupil. She is hard-working, thoughtful and always well-behaved. She is a brilliant listener and applies herself 100% in all that she does. Even when she finds something difficult she is motivated to try and overcome it in any way possible. I don’t think Gabrielle has ever lost a dojo point because her brilliant example of behaviour never falters.
Wyatt is one of the most polite members of Year Two and the perfect example of this is the fact that he thanks ‘Breakfast Club’ staff daily for making him breakfast. He is conscientious, determined and focused. He is always the first one on the carpet, the smartest lining up and the first to get stuck in to any given task. I cannot praise his fabulous attitude to school enough!
Year Three Nominations
Tallulah’s attitude to school and learning has improved immensely over the last two terms. She is beginning to take ownership of her own learning by settling down to lessons and showing good listening skills throughout the day. She has developed a positive attitude which is evident in her quality of work and her understanding. Tallulah is confident at managing distractions in class and often chooses to change seats to move away from any distractions in order to get on with her work and to complete her tasks. At the start of the year, Tallulah often struggled with working with others. However, she has recently shown a higher level of maturity, as she is now able to work with others, as a team and also works to support and motivate others.
Alfie has impressed us with his resilience and perseverance during tasks which he often struggles with. He is a great role model for his group as he often offers praise and encouragement to his peers. He is a caring pupil who is hardworking and polite.
